Yeehaw and Ahoy! Texas braved 101 degree temperatures to celebrate La Sardina unfurling her sails and weighing anchor into Lomograph-Seas. We partied on a bridge overlooking Lady Bird Lake and you couldn't make us smile harder if you had talked about shore-leave.
We are still developing all the photos taken by the Lomographers testing out these new buties, but we just had to show you how much fun we had. There were nautical costumes galore and sea shanties performed by the lovely Denise.
We reeled in a few whoppers while chatting with lomographers and passers-by about the new camera modeled after the humble sardine can.
There was a game of “Fishing for Film” that everyone thought was child’s play till they took their turn. There was some fierce faces and focused rods and reels to be sure.
The costumes ranged from fishermen and women to ships to Dog Fish! Max the Lomography-Pup made another appearance!
In the end the SS Lomo won the La Sardina Marathon edition. She came all the way from Houston for the launch. It seems the Texas Lomograph-amily extends far!
All and all we came, we fished, we snapped, and we walked away with fishy film fantasies.
Stay tuned for the pictures we snapped with the La Sardinas, soon.

Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
Anna Fischer calls herself a beauty documentary photographer. Her backstage photos of last year's New York Fashion Week revealed the glitz and glamour of such high fashion events. Her personal work, however, is more intimate, as seen is this series of photos taken with the new Petzvl 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens.
Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
